Five on Friday – July 4th Roundup

Gooood morning and happy Friday!  I’ve had a lot going on this week between preparing for Jacob’s room makeover and a couple of other projects that I’ve been working on, but I thought that I would pop in to say hello and share some last minute 4th of July inspiration.  If you’ve been following along for a while now, you may recognize a few of these…

But first, a look back at some previous July 4ths…

2012 - Jacob was just about to turn one!  Look at him!

2013 - He barely grew that year so he was able to wear the same outfit as the previous year.  Lol.

2014 - We added a sweet little nugget to the family and she was just over four months old here.  #BabyFever


2015 - Family picture game strong!  Except for the non-smiling Olivia (who barely had any hair!)




O N E – Patriotic Strawberries

Looking for a last minute app or dessert to bring to that cookout this weekend?  Look no further than these!  With only three ingredients, this will have you in and out of the kitchen in no time and all of your friends and family will love you for bringing them.  I made them last year for our 4th of July cookout, and they were completely gone before the burgers were even off the grill!



T W O – Red, White, and Blue Confetti Waffles

Looking for a festive breakfast to feed the kiddos for The 4th?  They will love these red, white, and blue confetti waffles!  They’re easy and tasty and they will brighten up your babies’ plates!


T H R E E – Vodka Strawberry Lemonade

The perfect summer drink and also my new favorite.  It’s crisp, it’s light, it’s refreshing.  Serve it in a blue cup, garnish with a red strawberry, add a festive straw, and BOOM, the perfect red, white, and blue drink.



F O U R – Home Décor Inspiration

I decorated our house for The 4th this year for the first time and I shared the tour this past Tuesday.  You can see it here.



F I V E – Red, White, and Blue Fashion

I love to dress our entire family in patriotic colors for the holiday.  I shared some of my favorite picks in this post back from Memorial Day.  So many cute things to choose from!





Have a safe and happy holiday weekend, friends!
